The Black Death, known now as the bubonic plague, was an epidemic several times during the 14th century, but when it is spoken of in history books, the term usually means the plague which killed more than a quarter of the world's population between 1348 and 1350, as that was the outbreak which changed the course of history in England, and set things in motion for the Peasants Revolt of 1381.
